    If I plug the iPod into my USB port, will it charge it? Today I went to do that, and it was completely dead and wouldn't mount or anything...

    I had to find the base station and plug it into that and it's now charging.

    Thanks

    Then why wouldn't it charge and had a weird charging symbol?

    It was a picture of a battery and a quarter to the left a jagged line through it. Nothing lit up.

    chances are you have it mounted in itunes - try ejecting it and then it will show the charging bit
    EDIT : just saw your 2nd post - have you followed the 5 r's??

    No, I haven't. I didn't even know about it. If I run into problems when I plug it in, I'll try again. Thanks!
